Start your engines: the Drag Race Down Under live show is coming, so may the best woman [at organising their friend group and getting tickets]… win!
All ten queens from the Stan Original show will be hitting the road this September, bringing their charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Canberra.
EPISODES 1–3 spoilers below:
As for what the show actually entails, here’s what we’ve got:
“The tour is presented by Live Nation, World of Wonder and Voss Events, the official tour will be featuring all of the glamorous queens from season one in spectacular shows across Australia.”
So, not a lot, but when the live show was announced in Las Vegas, Ru herself had this to say:
“RuPaul’s Drag Race Live! is an immersive, interactive thrill-ride for everyone who loves to laugh, dance and sing-along when a fabulous drag queen shakes her padded ass on stage.”
Sounds promising. And if the live show is anything like Down Under, you can fully expect a mix of lewks, laughs, and drag queens not afraid of the word “cunt”. It’s enough to make you wipe a proud, patriotic tear away.
